The Legacy Wastes
Free Cities of Pyrsha
Numerous city-states have managed to remain independent of rule by Xel. Seemingly the only thing they have in common with each other is their willingness to band together in times of need, and their fierce desire to remain free. Despots, democracies, and monarchies will argue and fight until a larger threat presents itself. The only reason they have not been crushed by the Empire of Xel however is the war with the the Formian Incursion. Xel is unstoppable in its deliberate advance, however, and several have fallen in recent decades.
The greatest of these cities is Tybergrad, a metropolis built into and around an inactive volcanic chain. The surrounding prairies are some of the richest lands on Pyrsha; the mines the most bountiful, the winds the fairest. All of these factors, plus it’s impenetrable walls and advantageous position, has made Tybergrad one of the largest settlements in Pyrsha and a center of airship trade.
